Forum For Proposing Racial Abilities

From The Cleft of Dimensions Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Here we will propose ideas for racial abilities. A while back there was once a plan to have 3 positive/unique attributes to each race. Looking at what we have, that hasn't been attained. I will add ideas that were circulated long ago. Feel free to add your own ideas or make comments in the discussion section, but do not remove any ideas. If you feel you could add something more to someone's suggestion, don't edit their suggestion, just add your own, possibly superior, version.

Abilities in bold already exist on the race.

The average maximums stat is 18. This will be considered a 0 score and the statistical score for races will be based off of this.

Unless otherwise noted, all races are Medium sized.

Koopa

Statistics - STR+1 INT+0 WIS-1 DEX-2 CON+2 TOTAL: +0

Resistances - Fire

Vulnerabilities - Water

- Come with a permanent koopa shell worn in the <about> slot, which provides defenses that grow as your level increases.

- Defensive skill: Withdraw. Toggle withdraw on, withdrawing yourself into your shell and vastly increasing your defenses, which makes you passive in fights and prevents you from using skills, spells, items or fleeing. Toggle withdraw off to return to normal.

- An attack skill resembling Mario's usage of kicking koopa shells into others, or Kooper from Paper Mario 2?

- Perhaps a unique flag when one sleeps is called for involving withdrawing into the shell. This could be tied to a boost in the regen rate for HP/MP while sleeping only, perhaps to the next highest category?

My observations:

- The median and mean are to have 91 maximum points and 65 starting points.

- No race besides humans has 19+ in both both str and wis or both dex and wis. (All other combinations can be found.)
